Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

technical problems

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

Due to technical problems, I`ve been unable to access my site. I am hoping it will be solved soon, because I really miss blogging 🙂 But until then, please be patient. A lot of things has happened, and I have a lot to show you once everything is back in order. Till then…!

London. Again.

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

If you are tired of London, you are tired of life. I don´t know who said it, but I think they are absolutely right.  Axel attended the annual Lighting-convention (or the no.1 new products show in entertainment and installation technology, as they prefer…). So anyway, here are some pictures from London, with light as the […]

If all is well, I am in London, by the time you read this. London is my favorite city, and I like to go there at least twice a year. It never grows old. Even if I go back to the same places, it is always something new anyway. Same gallery, new exhibition. Same market, […]

Challenging the world seas

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

I´ve just come back from the framers, after delivering this big collage. You can only see parts of it here, but all in all it´s about 70×100 cm.   Acrylics on watercolor-paper, oxidized copper-mesh and horse-hair are the main ingredients. Yepp, that´s real horse-hair… The motto of the company who will be the owner of […]

Oh, this is so exciting! Oxidizing solid copper. L.K. Ludwig said it didn´t really work all that well, when I was in her class at Artfest. But I really wanted to try anyway, and if it turns out really boring, I can add metal mesh.  I´ve been working with the fish and the circles today. […]

A man had seen this picture at my last exhibition, and came home and told his wife about it. Today she came and bought it for him for his birthday. So now the Seafarer is getting a new home too. A home by the sea. Where is where he wants to be. I got my […]

IF: strong

Sunday, September 6th, 2009

I chose to focus on inner strength this week. The main image of the man is a photo taken by Becky Nunes and is from a book called “Mau Moko – the world of Maori tatoo”. And the quote I found here and is by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Staircase paint-help

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

I just have to post this picture of my little nephew Anders. At age four, he prefers work over play, and he was very eager to help me paint my staircase. I think that is very sweet and considerate of him to be so helpful 🙂 He is one in a million!

IMT: Chair

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

I have redone several chairs during the years. This was my very first one. It was a project at teachers-college. I got the chair at an antique-shop, and made several sketches on how my new chair would be. (The chair below is an identical twin of the one I got. This one is in my […]

I´ve never done it before. I´ve just painted. And I´ve been happy with that. But now, I am no longer a wallpaper-virgin: Yester-yester-day, I wall-papered my first wall!  Before: And after: Isn´t this Charcoal Kimono wall-paper from Laura Ashley just lovely?! It turns out, I´m not so bad at it! Wall-papering, I mean. I am […]
